The reason why you had to make this as an incremental on top of an
older codebase (cf. Phillip's comment on 3/4) is because it is
already in 'next' and we do not wholesale replace.  I suspect that
we merged it 'next' before it was ready---sorry about that.

As the original series dl/merge-cleanup-scissors-fix is a short
series that is only 4 patches long, let me kick it out of 'next' to
make our lives easier.  That way, you can send the squashed result
as a fresh iteration, solving what these new 4 patches tries to as
the proper part of the series, instead of making them as if they are
afterthought on top of the original 4-patch series that was
incomplete.

Thanks.
